Spring Break! And pre-Easter wonderfulness....

It's spring break around here, but you wouldn't know by the weather. We had snow all day. It looks like next week will be better.

I was able to bring in the Easter season in an amazing way, though. Hubby and I saw a performance of Rob Gardner's Lamb of God. Amazing. I left in tears and the lump in my throat lingered for a while. It was really powerful. And also great because I got to support my dad, who sang in the choir. Someday I hope to be able to participate myself. I miss singing.

Here are some videos that can give you a glimpse. But I'll tell you, there is nothing like hearing music like this live. The choir was at least double the usual 60, and the acoustics were amazing. And I don't know that I've ever heard such angelic sopranos.


  1. Literally gave me the chills. Thanks so much for sharing it.

    Simply exquisite.


  2. Exquisite is a great word, Sue. I'm aching to hear it all again. NOTHING is like being there.

    There are more glimpses in this interview. Really interesting to hear more from the composer, too.

  3. I have heard so many wonderful things about "Lamb of God". How I would love to see it. I wonder if I ever will. At least it isn't being shown anywhere in our area. We live in the desert, Palm Desert in California to be exact and unfortunately we don't have a lot of musical talent. I really appreciate hearing a little of it. Just hope I can see it all before I die. I celebrate my birthday a week from today and I will be 84!
